Miss Bingley: designer’s sketch with notes; finished costume and makeup. From the book “The Making of Pride and Prejudice”’
She was overpowered by shame and vexation. Her coming there was the most unfortunate, the most ill-judged thing in the world! How strange must it appear to him! In what a disgraceful light might it not strike so vain a man! It might seem as if she had purposely thrown herself in his way again! Oh! why did she come? or, why did he thus come a day before he was expected? Had they been only ten minutes sooner, they should have been beyond the reach of his discrimination, for it was plain that he was that moment arrived, that moment alighted from his horse or his carriage.
"[cougar] is a little more trendy right now than I think it should be. Men have been doing it for so long. If a man’s 40 years older than a woman they’re dating or married to, it seems De rigueur, but if a woman dates someone five or ten years younger, it becomes such a big deal. I find that to be really distasteful." Lucy Liu in Schon magazine 2014
